Lillie Lemon w/ Gentle Brontosaurus

Lillie Lemon and Erica Wobbles are an indie electro pop duo based in Monterey, California. Songs are fueled by building crescendos and a unique hybrid of acoustic and electric sounds. Their long-awaited album, described as a "lovemaking session between folk and electro-pop", is an introspective, 11-track journey through heartbreak and tragedy. While /brak/ could be considered a downer conceptually, it's invigorating musically and spiritually.

Spot w/ Bucky Pope

It's too bad SPOT got identified with the limitations of punk rock. Although he was once a general in that army (see SST, Descendents, Minutemen, blah blah blah) he ran outta that ballpark a long time ago and last year published the photography book "Sounds of Two Eyes Opening" a document of SoCal culture he captured between 1969-1982. Really, at the core of it all, the guy is a multi-instrumentalist/composer/performer whose music revolved mostly around Traditional and Celtic styles through the 90s & 00s.
